Default A. Peterson's dad finally sees son

Quote:
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Playing in front of his father for the first time in college, Oklahoma tailback Adrian Peterson scored a touchdown on his third carry Saturday against Iowa State.

On his first carry, Peterson took a handoff to the left, then cut back to the right for a 40-yard gain to set up the No. 23 Sooners with first-and-goal at the 9. After a 3-yard pickup, he ran left and dodged three diving Cyclones to score from 6 yards out.

Better to come out now while his value is still high. If he comes back and has another injury, what would that do this value?

No way. He's gonna go back to Oklahoma to salvage his stock. He has to.

And he is durable. Breaking your collarbone has nothing to do with wear and tear or being prone to injuries. It's something that can happen to anyone when you're tackled the wrong way.

If he had nagging knee injuries, or a recurring shoulder problem, then we can talk about durability. Collarbone is a freak accident.

He had a shoulder injury...in high school. And then the ankle injury last year. Now it's a collarbone.

If he comes back next year and it's a knee, what happens to his stock then? He's gone.

Maybe he will come back on his dad's advice or something. His dad just got out of jail, maybe he will want Adrian to finish college. He hasn't seen his son play many college football games.

It was a jab at this post from the Adrian Peterson thread:

Default Re: A. Peterson's dad finally sees son

Just saw the run on ESPN where the injury occured, and it was a tremendous,
long run for a TD. Did not look like he was even touched, but he dived or fell after getting in the EZ. I dunno, maybe it was a celebration, if so very expensive ecelbration ? The kid is a tremendous runner.
No question he's still a first rounder in the 2007 Draft, but he will drop some do to the injury. Main thing, not a knee or leg injury of any type.

Or maybe his dad will want to help him spend his first signing bonus.

If he does decide to come out, I predict a Willis McGahee type fall. McGahee would have gone from probably a top 5 pick to getting drafted near the end of the first round (20th pick or something).

McGahee's injury was much different than this. As long as he can prove he's healthy a team will still probably take him in the top 10. Now I wouldn't mind if he dropped enough that Kubiak took a shot at him...I don't think it would happen but if we're drafting in the 10 range and there isn't a worthy DB or OL on the board, I would put a lot of consideration into it.

when you have an upright back running 30 times a game, you're going to get your share of injuries.

this injury had nothing to do with running upright and everything to do with showboating.
